April 3, 2012: Authorities said that a 43-year-old former student named One L. Goh walked into Oikos
University and began a shooting rampage that left seven people dead and three wounded
, trapping some in the building and forcing others to flee
for their lives.
It was an "extremely chaotic scene," police Chief Howard Jordan said of the deadliest campus shooting in five years.
The chief said Tuesday that Goh killed his seven victims execution-style.
The shooter allegedly walked into the University's single-story building, took a
receptionist hostage and went looking for a particular female
One witness said Goh told students: "Get in line and I'm going to kill you all." Goh walked into a classroom, lined up students against a wall and shot them one by one, Jordan said.
"This was a calculated, cold-blooded execution in the classroom," he said.
Goh ended his rampage by driving off in a victim's car, police said.
The gunman allegedly drove about three miles from campus before
surrendering to officers inside a supermarket.
